HP Loses Software Chief to Silver Lake

Gopal is reportedly going to be an operating partner, based in New York, and part of Silver Lake’s Value Creation team

The head of HP's software business Ajei Gopal has left for Silver Lake Partners, the private equity house teamed with Michael Dell to try to buy Dell.

Gopal is reportedly going to be an operating partner, based in New York, and part of Silver Lake's Value Creation team, working across the company's portfolio to improve operations.

It's a swap. HP just hired an IBM guy out of Silver Lake named George Kadifa to run software.

HP picked up Gopal last year from CA, which is also in New York.

Also an IBM vet, Gopal was CTO of Symantec before going to CA to oversee the CTO's office.
